one is a commuter. he is part-time. he also has another job being the u.s. attorney for the state of minnesota. same thing is true at the end of the bush administration. at this time, the atf's interim acting director was also a commuter. he also had another job as a u.s. attorney in boston. and, you know, why bother having somebody do this job full time? it's like the way people who make keys and people who repair shoes sometimes share a storefront. each one is like half a business. cobbler, key cutter, and ensuring the safe and legal operation of the multibillion gun market in the united states. you can just do that on tuesdays and thursdays, right? maybe you can do that online, check into flex-time. the fact that the gun lobby and the republicans will not allow anybody to be in charge of the agency that regulates firearms in this country is one of the ridiculous anomalies about this particular field of policy and governance that the president talked about at his press conference today. he got very specific about this today in a way that he has not done before. >> there is also

by nbc at 3:40 in the afternoon. susan rice remains the u.s. ambassador to the united nations. and a high-profile one at that. she's known for being very close to president obama, a long-time friend and ally for the president. she's also known for being blunt. and for being aggressively intelligent. she is a rhodes scholar. she's stanford educated. she was on the national security council staff and served as assistant secretary of state in the clinton administration. she was unanimously confirmed in 2009 for the post she holds now as the u.n. ambassador. when hillary clinton made clearer than clear that she would not stay on for a second term as secretary of state, susan rice's name was floated basically immediately as a potential nominee for that job. hers was not the only name floated for that job, but her potential nomination was given new prominence and new political heat when republican senators, led by john mcguess who decided that the political traction they could not get before the election in attacking the president for the benghazi attack, they would try to get instead after the

. there is about 6% of u.s. adolescents that are clinically depressed. that's not just sad. it's in a deep state that need help of one type or another. whether it's counseling or drugs or whatever. they need some help. they're relatively easy to identify. and you can do it in a simple screening process. for very little money. we could have every kid when you get your high school physical, you also have to get checked out, or periodically before graduation. because the thing is, most depressives, kids want to -- they want help. and they will tell adults. usually the two adults they will not tell are their mom and their dad. and that's actually part of the screening protocol is that parents can't be in the room, because they will usually tell a teacher or a counselor or a family doctor. they will tell an adult, but they hide it from their parents because they're embarrassed, ashamed, all sorts of different reasons. so the parents are often blind to it because the child is sort of blocking their view. so parents have difficulty. but yeah, we can do so much. >> each one of these things seems like it

a u.s. house committee i don't believe it's appropriate in michigan during 2012. another quote, you look now that they've had those things happen, talk about neighboring states. do they have a productive environment to solve problems? not necessarily. they're still overcoming the divisiveness, the hard feelings from all of that. that last quote of course was from rick snyder. current governor of michigan, who is apparently now been convinced that nothing is too divisive for his state. what happened to turn governor rick snyder around so fast on this? and what is going to happen to michigan if they pushed this through, as they say they are going to at lightning speed as early as tomorrow morning with no debate? joining us now for some insight is andy potter. he is a state vice president in the michigan corrections labor union. mr. potter himself is a republican, which makes me particularly grateful to have a chance to talk to you tonight. so thank you for being here. >> absolutely. >> you are republican. your republican party is poised to strip union rights in a way that they didn't
